Ok. Have it your way. What I said was that if
someone meant to remove the well-formedness bedrock
that is, return to requiring schema processing to
pick up the defaults, then I agree with you: bad
plan. What happens after that is up to the
application language processing. XML doesn't care.
Competition shall be the means to control change;
so be it. The best competitor controls change.

Given the results of recent planning, I'm certainly cheering for ad
hoc. For this phase of development, I've got a lot more faith in
competition than committee, and I'm counting on well-formed XML - and only
well-formed XML - to provide a foundation for interoperability that lets us
get through this probably contentious period.
